There are many aspects of property rights above and beyond just ownership of the property. Property can have leases, easements, mineral rights, rights of entry, mortgages, mechanic’s liens and more. All these rights, whether recorded or not are what create status in the property, such as a right to possess the property or own the property. To “quiet” the title to real estate literally means to determine exactly who has what rights with respect to a given piece of property. When file a quiet title lawsuit, we are asking the court to determine these rights as they were at time of the filing of the lawsuit.

For quiet title actions, you must be in possession of the property or out of possession of the property, but have a right to the property. Quiet title actions are used in many different types of cases to recover property rights.
